SINGLE USE SURGICAL INSTRUMENTS


The main objective of the single use surgical material is to improve the safety of the surgical act itself, by eliminating the risks of cross contamination, trough surgical instruments, of diseases such as the Creutzfeld Jakobs, HIV, Hepatitis, etc.

A big number of surgical instruments are provided of bends, angles, blocking mechanisms , which may retain residual particles of tissue after every surgical procedure. To clean these instruments is not ease and not always sufficient to eliminate the debris left behind in the surgical procedure.

Every new single use instrument is intact, sterile, and shows no risk in the surgical procedure.

Reusable instruments do not last forever. With every use, in each cycle of decontamination, they get deteriorated and especially at their extremities and weak areas which lose precision. This becomes in damages by corrosion or abrasion that makes more and more difficult and less efficient the posterior cleaning processes and may show a higher risk of provoking a failure of the components during a surgical procedure.

In addition to the safety benefits the single use procedural kits of surgical instruments offer also plenty of other advantages related to the cost / efficiency relationship which is often not perceived, such as the absolute reduction of the added costs related to the re-sterilization process.
